Deserving or not, I think it's time to make a change with the pitching coach. Just as Hatcher paid for the the hitters not performing, Butcher's going to have to be pay for what's going on with our pitchers.
Next guy may be better or not but the shake up often helps. As it did when Hatcher left.
Venting... You don't do that?
Please tell me you're not being a hypocrite.
I'm not opposed.
Don't know the answer but, yes, they stink!Can't be counted on at all.If we have to go to the pen, the opponent just lick their chops and unload on us.Downs needs to get healthy quick as we are in a quick downward spiral.
Trumbo and Pujols need to get their mojo back. (Trumbo homers as I write this!)
And Mike is gonna have to be quicker with the hook when it's obvious a RP is choking.Our RPs don't come back from a bad inning or at bat. They are too easily rattled.
It hurts more due to the fact the Angels position players are battling all game long. Even when the bullpen implodes and gives up a lead..
We should be talking about Morales and the rest of the offense today :(
I don't really blame Butcher for the bullpen meltdown. When you are depending on aging vets like Hawkins, Izzy, Takahashi and a now fragile Downs there really isn't much you can do..
On the other hand, if CJ and Greinke continue to struggle, Butcher must go..Santana's struggles doesn't help either
The bullpen is probably the worst in the entire game. I knew the minute the starters couldn't gobble up 7 innings and / or Downs and Frieri came back down to earth, the middle relief would be exposed.
It's time for a change. I would promote Mex rod or SOMEONE from the farm. Carpenter and Takahashi are a disaster, and whatever pixie dust Hakwins, Isringhausen, and Jepsens has used is wearing off.
You're nuts... do you know that?
I know I'm crazy, but do you know you're crazy.
